Siebren Versteeg mines the digital realm for content, hacking and manipulating systems of image dissemination found in cyberspace. Creating algorithmic programs that respond to and distort online imagery, Versteeg then presents the results as still painterly abstractions, or displays the programs on monitors. Daily Times (2012) is a real-time digital program presented on a monitor, which downloads a scan of The New York Times’ front page daily; the program then gets to work on it, producing strokes of color across the page that respond to the particularities of that day’s layout, thereby engaging with notions of agency, choice, and chance, and how they intersect with digital streams of information.
